Good wine selection, and helpful staff. The food was also quite good, but the table and seating were a bit cramped. I would recommend making a reservation to ensure you get a table.

Suggest making reservations as this place can get very busy. We used Open Table to reserve and were seated right way. We needed a place to sit to eat for lunch meeting with limited time. While it was a little loud, we enjoyed the experience. Service and food were good and we were able to eat and pay bill in... More

Located under our hotel, so convenient for us. Good hot food, slightly noisy because of chattering etc., so not a place for quiet conversation, however, the service was good and just perfect for us.

On a recent weekend trip to NYC we were walking in the vicinity of Grand Central and interested in a light meal before going to the theater. This wine bar turned out to be the perfect spot. The wine cocktails were very good and were nicely accompanied by a cheese plate. The meals were better than we hoped. The salad... More

A colleague and I stopped in for a late dinner bite and a couple of drinks. Overall, the food and drinks were good. We sat outside, which was a great spot to people watch and soak in the NY vibe. Our server was attentive, polite and friendly. All in all, I enjoyed the experience and, if I'm in this area... More

We ordered room service from here while we were staying at The Library Hotel. It was really good and the price was pretty good for NY.

We loved the cocktails and wine list. Great street seating for some crowd watching. We also chose to eat there on our return to the Library Hotel after a busy day of sightseeing and the food was good.

I have not actually eaten here but I have phoned the restaurant twice and emailed twice in regards to booking thanksgiving dinner. The first email I received back assured me I could book in for thanksgiving and to call them anytime to make a reservation. I called and the lady that answered had no idea what I was talking about,... More

I know New York has a reputation of people being abrupt but we did not find this at all except in this restaurant! I ordered a cocktail only to be told they didn't have the ingredients to make it, was not offered any alternative. My husband ordered a steak which was good, I ordered a tuna salad, didn't think it... More
